I have a 2003 honda accord 2.4 engine with just about 162,000 miles on it.
Engine lights turns on and I decide to take it to Firestone, they had ran a computer analysis on it and said the problem was the O2 sensor that needed to be changed.
Then I took my car to Pepboys and had the same test run on it, they said that it was the catalytic converter.

should I take it to the dealership or whom should I go to because I dont really know whos right?

Do you
have the same problem?

What we need is the exact code number being set.

I don't know. I wasn't there. The car is setting the code not the tech. He is merely reading it.

So when I retrieve the code, to whom do I go to rely on?
